    I swear by your playdough recipes: every time I need to make it I ‘dig out’ your ebook. Still not managed the cooked stuff yet though: mine is always gooey…..there’s a new dimension of sensory play to it though, so no-one loses!!

    Domestic Goddesque, it makes me very happy to think the book is useful to you :) We nearly always go with the no-cook recipe too – it’s just so quick and easy.

    oops, put in 3 posts, then read that I was only supposed to put 1. Sorry. I also use your play dough e book as a resource often. I refer fellow mamas to the ebook whenever I hear of peeps looking for something fun to do at home with the kids, especially now on the east coast, cabin fever.
